In the SE and SS, kidnapping is high
But it also occurs in SW and N
They seize you and extort money from your people, and in most cases you are alive to tell the story
In contrast, political killing is 100% in the SW; hardly do you read of any in SE, SS and N
Non of these are good, but if to make a choice which will you take?:
To be killed because of politics (SW) and your life ended
And to be kidapped and extorted (SS, SE, SW and N)? You still continue living?
